April has been quite a month for me–I can’t believe it’s already almost over! This month started off with my 21st birthday! Believe it or not, I had a very nice and quiet birthday party–spent it mostly with my parents in California. We went to this seafood restaurant and I ate WAY too many oysters!
Two days later, I left for Japan to make a recording. The CD will mainly be compiled of my favorite short encore pieces.The recording process was very fun, but also very tedious; I spent 12 hours in a studio, from 11 AM to 11PM(,)for three days. At the end of the recording process, I was so exhausted and got quite sick!
Nonetheless, everything went successfully, and my producer and I were very happy with the way in turned out. I spent 10 days total in Tokyo and enjoyed every second of it! This recording will be released on May 10th and will be available to everyone, so I will definitely post again once it is officially out. I’m excited for
it to officially come out!
Now I am in Busan, Korea. I just finished my concert with the Busan Symphony Orchestra. The concert was very successful and the hall (seated a little over 1000 people) was just about full. I played Sarasate’s, “Zigeunerweisen” and “Carmen Fantasy” and ended up playing Salut d’amour as an encore. The audience was so great! I’m leaving back to the states tomorrow morning now, so I better get started on packing (my least favorite thing to do). Hope everyone had a great month and I’ll write again soon!
